I have never been asked by any employer to show my actual degree. Plus, you can always get a transcript of you college/university courses.

I agree with the above poster. Tearing up her degree was childish. It was done for popular ratings, nothing else.

I haven't seen my diploma in ages. No one has ever asked to see it.

I find it totally ironic that the second greatest enemy of the U.S. is being treated like a celebrity in the very country that he hates.

god bless America!
yes... god bless columbia.

this guy, wack-a-doodle as he may be, is one of the most influential people in the world today.

they didn't invite him over to the president's house for tea and crumpets... they invited him to a speaking forum so that, ya know, these things that colleges have, students i think they're called, can be, i dunno, better informed on the thoughts and ravings of one of the world's most influential people?

god forbid... what a blow to education. we'll never be the same.

I don't understand this. Perhaps if Columbia University gave him an honourary degree, I might protest that way.

I hate how people complain that he shouldn't have been invited to speak. But yet his speech is broadcast on all the major news networks, the auditorium is filled up, and millions of people are tuned in, including the ones who protested against the speech.

How many people who said that he shouldn't have been invited to speak protested by actually NOT watching the speech?

0?

I thought so.
